Magoosh has a user-friendly interface, and was very effective for me. The practice problems gave me an estimated score, which helped me know what subjects to focus on. The videos are clear and concise, focusing on both knowledge and strategy.

How did Magoosh help you?
I would say that Magoosh helped me the most in the English section and the Math section of the test. Although Magoosh helped me with the material itself, the aspect of Magoosh I like best is the pacing. Before using Magoosh, most errors I made were from rushing through the tests and forgetting all of the points I spent hours studying for. Most of my study sessions using paper books suffered from the flaw of me underestimating the time that I have and hastily answering questions on the English and Math section without thinking about my answers. Magoosh, however, remedied the situation with a clock that was built in and speed statistics. This helped me see how my times were being affected. Ultimately, this helped me slow down and answer the questions after some thought. This translated to me having a much better score on the actual test.

Magoosh really helped me improve my science section by giving me an approach to maximize my time and keep focus. Magoosh also taught me all the material I needed to ace the English section!! Cannot thank Magoosh enough for this!

It was genuinely helpful, especially in math and science. I used the technique of focusing on the subjects that I didn't score too well in the first time. Some of the colleges I'm applying to Superscore. It brought my Superscore up to a 32. Thanks!!!

The couple months before I took the ACT were crazy hectic. I wasn't in town and was jumping from one plane to another. Magoosh was the only thing I had with me and I would be sitting in the most random places just watching the videos. It all really helped! I honestly could not have done it without Magoosh. My math score isn't as great as I wanted because I didn't study as much for it but Magoosh helped me learn, review, and become a better test-taker.

Magoosh gave me an effective and reliable form of studying for the test that I had difficulty attaining through the standard test books and I didn't have the money to pay a tutor. Magoosh was really helpful and helped me raise my ACT score by 3 points. If you have ever used Khan Academy or any other online teaching system then Magoosh will be helpful and very easy to use.
